"Thank you for directing me to very useful resources that I can tap into to continue developing my writing skills and learning."
"At first I was upset with myself about the requirement to take this course. Following the information I learned in this course, I really believe this course should be a requirement for everyone to take on their doctoral journey."
Walden University recognizes the centrality of writing to students’ work as scholar-practitioners. The writing assessment is required for all students who start, readmit to, or change specializations into doctoral programs at Walden University in the university catalog for academic year 2017 or later.
This writing assessment provides students the opportunity to strengthen their skills as needed in summary, organization, paraphrase, synthesis, and other areas fundamental to doctoral-level writing. In providing this assessment, we aim to help prepare students to meet the university’s expectations for doctoral-level writing. We want to help give students writing tools and practice for success throughout their coursework.
